Pushing for Peace

Pushing for Peace with Marilyn Cooper

The Peace Games are a series of 9 solo, partnered and group activities based on Tai Chi body movements and philosophy. No martial skill or athletic ability is required to play. They are designed to make people feel more centered, grounded, relaxed and connected to each other. The Peace Games make people feel more empathetic and cooperative. The Games take about one hour to complete. They can be played indoors or outdoors, in a classroom or a field. Each Game builds on what is learned from the previous one, culminating in a whole group game that requires the constant awareness of each person from moment to moment. After playing the Peace Games, participants report feeling more in tune with nature and aware of others and their environment. They are a good way to discover and feel “Qi”without learning complicated new forms.
